Two police officers had to be sent to Khoo Teck Phuat hospital earlier this morning after a car crashed into their patrol car.

The driver of the car, a 60-year-old, was arrested and is believed to have been driving under the influence of alcohol.

The eyewitness who took this photo, David Cai, says he saw the errant driver being led away in handcuffs by police officers.

The incident happened at 2.47am along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5 towards Buangkok Green.

There is no fixed benchmark for how much you can drink before driving as everyone’s body reacts differently to alcohol.

But for good measures, you are considered to be driving under the influence of alcohol if you are found with:

a) more than the legal limit of 35 microgrammes (ug) of alcohol per 100 ml of breath, or
b) more than 80millimigrammes (mg) of alcohol per 100ml of blood

And the penalty for drink driving:

1st offence – Fine of between $1,000 and $5,000 or up to 6 months imprisonment
2nd offence – Fine of between $3,000 and $10,000 and up to 12 months of imprisonment
3rd and subsequent offence – Fine of up to $30,000 and up to 3 years of imprisonment.

So don’t drink and drive, and even if you do, for goodness sake don’t langga a police car!
